Just 3 days till the new release of the xbox version of San andreas...

I for one am really excited

1. I love the game
2. I was going to cancel my live subscription (only halo 2 was being played out of ALL my live compatible games)... but found a few peeps who actually play more than just halo2 on live ...So i am keeping it... back on track

I know there will be major graphical improvements ... and I have heard talk about other features the xbox will have that the ps2 didn't ie custom sound trax like in other installments of gta...

I purposely 1. trashed my ps2 and 2. didn't buy, play, or look at the ps2 version... paitently waited for the xbox release to drop

I prepayed for gta san already and I just love the franchise, but it seems like everyone else is burnt out about it and not so impressed anymore... has a game so filled with openness and free play with huge cities to roam lost its flair?

Are we bored and are now waiting for them to step it up to the next level?

what are your thoughts?

I find that I have more fun with gta than any other game... I purchased live to have fun but noone ever seems to play the games I like and Halo 2 was the only thing getting action ( and there were so many peeps cheating and playing lame it didn't make it fun so I was going to cancel live (since I wasn't getting my $$ worth) and gta would keep my attention and supply fun for a very long time... at least till the next batch of next gen consoles hit the market

You will truely be impressed by the sheer size of this game. I bought the PS2 version and can't wait for both the PC & Xbox versions. There are tons of things to do in this game and people are still coming up with new ideas to keep the gameplay fresh. It's an amazing game and should definitely tide you over until they step it up. I hope GTA 4 on xbox360 won't have the 5 year waiting period for the PS3 port. And yes, the next will be GTA 4 as Vice City and San Andreas are built on the GTA 3 engine.

im getting a little tired of 'free roaming' games... to some degree it seems as though people are getting lazier in story telling so they give you the option to 'do anything' when they actually mean wander around and do 3-4 different activites...

Got it for PS2, realised that I didn't really like the PS2 control, decided to wait for the Xbox version.

that's the long and short.

I must admit that some of the tasks in GTA are kinds of chores, but they're a challenge that you have to beat, so it's all good fun.

it seems that they give you to much to do at once, it's overwhelming.

ummm, GTA SA has the most complete story of any of the GTA games, maybe you have lost connection with the story or are one of those people that just roam the city killing people.

Just wanted to add that I recently took a 2-3week break from H2. I bought a ps2 off a friend of mine for 20$, fixed it and bought GTA SA.


1 word BamFuckingMazing. personal airfield with spawning militay equipment and civilian flight gear and a fucking jetpack. 100 tags to find, 50 horseshoes,50 clams, 50 cnapshots to find. Losing 5 million$ in 3 rounds of blackjack and then breaking the house by winning 9 hands in a row. Taking over rival gang hoods.


my only complaint is that it takes wayyyyy to long to change clothes and the tattos/hair cuts and clothes dont really get better

That's all I did in GTA3, that's almost all I did in Vice City, so hopefully this is fun just running around killing people too smile.gif
